All About Life Insurance

All you need to know about life insurance

Life insurance is one of the major investment plans when it comes to long-term financial planning. It can be effectively incorporated into your portfolio if you know and understand how the death benefits for the same will be paid.

Insurance companies in India mostly pay out the benefits within 30 days of the insured person’s death. Very few instances occur when the company takes more than 60 days to claim the benefit after the death of the insured, subject to their requirements and needs to confirm the claim.

A beneficiary needs to take a few important steps to ensure that the death benefits are paid out to them as quickly as possible. The beneficiary should know that not all claims are handled quickly or immediately and take a while to be processed. An insurance company will make sure that the claims are verified and not fraudulent. To fasten the process, the beneficiary needs to provide a certified copy of the death certificate of the insured person. Most life insurance companies require an original death certificate instead of a copy. An individual can order some death certificates that can be provided in original to each of the insurance company the insured person has insurance to be claimed.

One of the most important aspects of getting the claims is to reach out to your agent as well as the life insurance company immediately. It is best advised to notify them so as to expedite the process. A document form (paperwork) for the claim is required to be physically filled by the beneficiary; with the help of your agent, you can do so easily.

Life insurance plans and policies are the best way to provide financial support in the unfortunate event of a person’s death. It is essential to accurately provide the right documents on time, to expedite your process and claim the benefits faster. It’s always advisable to consult your agent, or IRDA Certified professional about death benefits and claims in advance. Also, seek advice on pre-death benefits and deceased beneficiary payouts. These can be clarified by your insurance company or the agent that deals with your life insurance policy.

More often than not, traditional lenders don’t provide premium financing, and business owners need to look for specific premium financing providers to secure the loan.

Benefits of Premium Finance

When a company releases a large amount of payment, its owner must first consider whether the funds are needed for the daily operation of the company or the expansion of the business. And to prevent liquidating some of the company’s assets or using key funds, financing is required.

A business owner can finance multiple policies via a single agreement that allows the owner to make a single insurance premium payment a month. In most cases, insurance companies accept premium financing and accept payment straight from the finance provider. When that is the case, the premium finance company will bill the business owner instead of the insurer.
